Josh Klinghoffer interview with MusicRadar 26 Apr 2012

Red Hot Chili Peppers' Josh Klinghoffer on his band Dot Hacker
Plus: adjusting to Chili Peppers life



Has there been a Chili Peppers song from their catalogue that you're still trying to nail? Not just like the record, but to your own standards.

"Yes, actually – the song Snow. It's funny, because I remember being in England right at the same time they were, too, and it was when Stadium came out. We hooked up, I was hanging out, and they were playing something for the BBC. They started playing the song and I was like, 'Fucking hell! No way am I ever going to be able to play that and sing that backup part. And thank God I will never have to!' [laughs]

Cut to now, and we’ve been on tour for six months collectively, and you know, because that song was a hit, a couple of people, and one of our managers especially, were like, ‘Where’s that song?’ And it’s just because I feel like I haven’t nailed it, not so much the guitar part but the guitar part and the background vocal at the same time – it feels so much like John.

I guess I should be sitting in front of my stereo playing it 100 times a day. But you know, when it’s ready, when it’s natural, it’ll happen. I’ve played it twice today already. I can play it, but there’s that syncopated background vocal and the guitar at the same time. It still feels like an exercise. I just want it to feel natural. To make it good, I have to feel free."

great interview! josh is feeling more comfortable. I like snow part too and this one:


quote:
What's been the biggest musical lesson you've learned from playing with the Chili Peppers?

"It's really been highlighted and accentuated… just being free and being yourself, not being fearful. Being on stage, I can trust myself more easily. Playing with guys like Flea and Chad, they just go for it. Just be me – that's the lesson I've learned.

"Like John Frusciante – I'll never be him. I can never be another person. I can only be me, and hopefully people will like it. I mean, I've been a fan of this band since I was 10 years old, so it's hard to sit and go, 'You're playing songs off of Blood Sugar…' But like I said, you just have to be yourself, play the song as yourself – that's what I'm reminded of every time I play with them."

And I thought this topic would be rife with people saying that Josh sucks because he "can't" play Snow.

He's right. I've maintained that since Josh was in the band songs like "Snow" are SO John-esque that you just can't play it. Certain band members should only play their certain songs, and Snow is John's song.

And lets face it, they've been doing some good deep cuts and fan service with Josh. I don't need to hear Snow if I can (and did!) hear stuff like If You Have To Ask or basically anything off of BSSM.
